Indian Jewelry: Totaled
Woozy, heart-pounding and subject to double-vision, TOTALED is more than a record for people doing poppers. It’s an all-in album, an unsprung clock, and it moves sideways in time. In it is the swamp electro of 2003's We Are The Wild Beast, the nightmare throb of 2005's Invasive Exotics, and the sonic angel dream of 2008's Free Gold. It's a crash course in sound + vision.
The record was written and recorded in 2009 in Houston, Texas and Los Angeles, California by Erika Thrasher and Tex Kerschen. TOTALED is the sum of hundreds of shows on the road, hundreds of hours under headphones, and the countless songs they've already written together. These are songs like iced tongues. Songs for the love hole, mind hole, sink hole, worm hole. This is an encounter with the true and the truly fucked up.
